Gold Prices May Resume Selloff After Pause, Crude Oil Gains

Gold Prices May Resume Selloff After Pause, Crude Oil Gains

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Gold prices stall above $1200/oz amid lull in Fed-related news flow
  • Crude oil prices surge on hopes Russia, OPEC to cooperate on output
  • Rising Fed rate hike bets may punish gold anew, oil gains may fizzle

Gold prices marked time amid a lull in news-flow guiding Fed rate hike speculation, the central theme driving price action. Selling pressure may re-emerge before long however as the priced-in probability of tightening before the end of the year continues to swell. Traders now imply the chance of an increase at 68 percent, the highest in four months.

Scheduled comments from Chicago and Minneapolis Fed Presidents Charles Evans and Neel Kashkari may inspire a near-term response but follow-through seems unlikely. Both officials have made their views widely known recently and neither is a voting member of the current FOMC rate-setting committee. Traders will likely await the release of minutes from September’s policy meeting as next major inflection point.

Crude oil prices lurched higher anew, revising levels unseen since the WTI benchmark carved out a swing top in early June. The advance followed comments from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said his country is prepared to cooperate with Saudi Arabia on supply management after the latter country led OPEC to an output cut deal in Algiers last month.

Putin’s comments, deliveredat the World Energy Forum in Istanbul, seem to contradict his Energy Minister Alexander Novak, who said he doesn’t expect to reach accord with his OPEC counterparts at this gathering. Frequent reversals in Russia’s public position on coordinating price-boosting efforts have become commonplace. It would not be surprising to see today’s gains fizzle as quickly as yesterday’s decline.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSISGold prices have paused to digest losses after an eight-day losing streak brought prices to a four-month low. From here, a breach of the 1240.96-50.11 area (76.4% Fibonacci retracement, June 24 low) on a daily closing basis exposes the May 30 bottom at 1199.55. Alternatively, a reversal above the 61.8% Fib at 1266.58 aims for the 50% level at 1287.29.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSISCrude oil prices pushed higher anew, negating a bearish reversal signal identified yesterday. Negative RSI divergence warns upside momentum is ebbing however and hints a reversal may yet materialize in the near term. A turn below the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 50.50 exposes the 48.97-49.07 area (August 23 high, 61.8% level). Alternatively, a push above the June 9 high at 51.64 targets the 100% Fib at 52.82.
